SJEH Awarded Mammography OK

St. John’s Episcopal Hospital South Shore has been awarded a three-year term of re-accreditation in mammography, as a result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology.

The American College of Radiology, based in Reston, Va., awards accreditation to hospitals for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation. Evaluations are con­ducted by board-certified phy­sicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualification of the personnel and the adequacy of the hospital’s equipment. The surveyors report their finding to the College’s Committee on Accredit­ation, which subsequently pro­vides a comprehensive report.

St. John’s mammography program offers state-of-the-art equipment and is staffed by board certified radiologists and certified technicians. The Im­aging Department handles more than 50,000 images a year, and also offers highly sophisticated digital fluoros­copy for interventional radiology, ul­trasound, nuclear medicine, CT scans, and vascular imaging. For more information about imaging at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital South Shore, please call 718-869-7710.
